I know a family who has a child with a peanut allergy. No nuts for them—except for one week each year when this kiddo heads off to camp. Then the whole rest of the family eats all the peanuts for a week before sanitizing the house in time for their child to come home. I was reminded of them when I found a jar of peanuts in my pantry the other day, and I was inspired to see what I could do with it. Here are nine peanut recipes to try.
Kung pao chicken is my husband’s favorite thing to order when we get Chinese takeout. My daughter’s not a big fan because “it’s spicy,” so when making this for your family, feel free to play with the amount of spicy ingredients to get them just right for you.
My first thought upon seeing these cookies is how amazing they would be for an afterschool snack. Okay. My first thought was that I really wanted to eat one. After that, I realized I’d score some major mom points for serving this PB&J after school.
Alright, this one might be cheating a little bit because the main ingredient is actually peanut butter and the nuts are an optional garnish. I just had to include it though, because I love Thai peanut chicken! And who doesn’t love an easy slow cooker meal?
Here’s another recipe that uses peanuts as a garnish and peanut butter as a main ingredient—but you can use your homemade peanut butter, so it’s all good! This creamy, rich soup makes a great appetizer or a fun side dish.
Whether you like granola for breakfast or for a tasty snack, here are two fun options for you, the first is a Peanut Butter Cup granola and the second is an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie granola. Both look pretty darn good.
